The guys at Blackbox have been working in concert sound since the 80s. The technology evolved with the music, until nowadays we have an unrivalled ability to deliver the best sound possible for your show. Our engineer led approach starts with system design and fastidious Prep. Working with d&b audiotechnik speaker systems and desk packages from Avid, Digico, Allen & Heath and Midas, we can deliver fantastic results with the latest Digital Quality equipment.
BLACKBOX can be working simultaneously at tiny venues like the 150 capacity Blue Arrow Club in Glasgow, and at arena shows with audiences of tens of thousands. Whether it’s classical or traditional at the Barbican or Clyde Armadillo, through pop indie and metal at the Barras or the Usher Hall, Blackbox have worked within all musical genres to produce the best sound possible in any room. There is also a section of the warehouse full of well polished and well loved heritage and analogue equipment, valve compressors and classic reverbs, ancient microphones and the unsurpassed clarity and warmth of the Midas XL4 console. We always use the right equipment to get the sound you want.
Blackbox have made a speciality of music Festivals, we have systems in place which allow multi stage festivals to run seamlessly, with small tents working like little individual venues, but intricately linked to the action and the assets on the main stage and to the back stage resources of our production crew.
